A strange and beautiful life

Posted by White Crane Feather , 20 September 2013 · 385 views

I just got back from the coffee shop getting some tea. I needed something to sooth my throat and I was out dropping my kids off at school. I got my toddler some chocolate milk. I left it on the hood of the car. We fed the chickens then came in side. Soon enough he realized he did not have his treat and wanted to go get it. I got my aching body up again with a groan and went outside at his lead and I gave it to him. We walked back towords the house and he stops suddenly, looks to his left and dashes about 10 feet with his hand waving and chocolate milk cradled in his other. He says "HI!"

I'm looking to see who he is talking to, but we live on an acre... There is no one. The suddenly he hugs his drink in both hands and pulls it away looking over his shoulder "my choc" ( it sounds like "my chalk") he does this to people when he is carrying a sweet or a toy when he meets people. He has two older brothers always harassing him.

I look off into the empty air and whoever or whatever he sees, ironically, as if it were completely normal, I wave and smile at whatever is there and go to pick him up. Just before I do he picks up an acorn and tosses it in the direction saying "here", ( his offer instead of his milk). I walk back into the house without looking back. He of course waves bye bye.
